My twist on dessert.
Right in the heart of the quaint little downtown area of Glen Ellyn, Il. this cute little Breakfast spot is the perfect destination for a healthy bowl of steel cut oats with Black Berries and Walnuts. For only $3.50 this is a great alternative to fast food. Only downfall was it was a 20 minute wait with only a handful of customers seated and 7 employees behind the counter.
Definitely would still recommend this spot because of the many food and drink options and very affordable prices.
Went outside my Sunday Norm (eggs benedict) and ordered a big juicy skirt, steak 4 eggs, veggies, and gluten free pancakes. I could only eat a third of this. Lol
Service was Great. Even on a Sunday at 8am. I sat down right away and food was prompt. Thank you Amy for explaining great gluten free low carb options. $9.86 before tip (with my $15 Groupon)
Straight from my kitchen to yours…
My New “Sweet & Classy” Ham, Egg and cheese croissant.
Ham, Egg, spinach, tomato and Grand Cru Surchoix cheese (2016 Winner of World’s Best Cheese), on a Fresh Almond Croissant from Hanna’s Bakery. It’s so light and flaky it melts in your mouth! #yumyum #hungrygirl #jaxkitchen
April 22-23, 2017 Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo
“The Expo is the biggest gluten free and allergen friendly event in the US. Whether you’re looking for specialty products that taste great or trying to learn how to cook and bake to meet your dietary needs, the Expo is the place to be!”
One thing I’ve been craving is Bacon Donuts and boy was I not disappointed. These Praline Bacon Donuts were Amazing. Just a touch of salty and sweet with a light fluffy donut.$2.50 each
And to my surprise they also had Biscuits and gravy! The best I’ve ever had! Rich creamy gravy with chunks of meat and crispy potatoes. Yum. Only around $6 for a half an order
The fun part was they have about 20 different varieties of donuts. Here’s a few more.

I am so excited to get my personal food blog up and running. Join me as I venture out into Chicagoland NW burbs and occasionally surrounding states to search for delicious meals under $20. You may see some sweet treats posted here and there throughout my blog too because life is all about balance.
Being a home cook also I focus a lot on Gluten free and allergy free meals for my family so I will be posting some shopping trips for affordable ingredients as well.
Thanks for stopping by, come back often!
